Where Does The Time Go?

27 Apr

Seriously? One day you look up from the dishes and realize it’s already the next Tuesday. It’s already been a month. It’s already been a year. Oh, and what a roller coaster the last 12 months have been. We dealt with the global pandemic lockdown just like everyone else, but we also had a car accident, the dog died, the well pump died, and then the water heater needed work. But that’s just the highlight reel of negativity.

Positive things that happened over the past 12 months are things like my husband’s job was deemed essential, one of my sisters and I started a business, the girls had a summer full of sunshine and bubble blowing, I learned how tough I am by recovering nicely from a broken leg and messed up ankle (and surgery to fix both), we got new (to us) cars, our insurance rates didn’t go up, our marriage survived all that emotion and paperwork, Christmas was great, Easter was fun, one of the kittens we bottle raised 3 years ago was returned to us due to the owner’s physical limitations (she’s settling in nicely and the girls are loving a lovable kitty), and now I am putting in this years garden.

Somehow, at the end of it all, the positive outweighs the negative.

I really hope the positive outweighed the negative over your last 12 months, too. Sometimes it’s difficult to look up through the crazy day to day and see the bigger picture, but it’s worth it. There’s something grounding about it. Somehow it makes that day’s hurdles just a little less intimidating. You’ve already been through a lot. You can also handle today.
